Alexa, Engage Our Learning!

My students need 2 Fire tablets and an Amazon Echo Dot to further engage their love of technology at school and at home with their families.

My Students

My fourth graders represent such diversity in a variety of ways! They have different home experiences and different learning experiences, all of which have helped shape who they are today. My job this year as their teacher is to provide them with the best possible year to help further enhance their life experience!

This phenomenal group of kids deserve every possible chance to succeed!

We are a large, Title I school with many struggling learners who need unique opportunities that a traditional student may not require.

My Project

As a teacher who lives in the community in which I work, one of my greatest joys is connecting to my students' families and hearing about their pride and excitement in learning about their child's education. All of my students and their families, no matter their home lives or socioeconomic status, deserve opportunities to have meaningful home-to-school connections.

Introducing an Amazon Echo to my own household and hearing the excitement my children have for learning through Alexa has inspired me to share this same experience with my students and their families.

While I cannot provide each family with their own, I can incorporate an Echo Dot in our class room that will allow my boys and girls to share our daily fun at home during family talks.

Alexa, help us grow as happy learners and families!
